Amazing when you look at the lineup back then.  Keith Urban. Brad Paisley, Craig Morgan and more. Household names now - not so much back then!   Here are some of my shots that I found in an old shoebox. (not really - it was on my hard drive).  There's even a crowd shot.  Were you there? 

Can You Find Yourself?  This is like "Where's Waldo?"

Remember Josh Gracin of "American Idol" fame?  Great performer!
